A special message on Giving Tuesday

If you want to change what you see on screen, you need to change who;s behind the scenes

Joy Loewen


Today we’re celebrating Giving Tuesday – a time for us to recognize National Screen Institute participants and alumni who share their truth through storytelling.

This year, we’re sharing a truth of our own which guides the work we do every day:

If you want to change what you see on screen, you need to change who’s behind the scenes.

How can we achieve this? It starts with you.

At the National Screen Institute, we see first-hand how a more inclusive industry is closer than ever before – with 81% of our alumni from underrepresented communities. Together, we can inspire the next generation of participants to see a future for themselves in this industry, be it on screen or behind the scenes.

Throughout December, we will be sharing more reasons to believe that our goal is within reach. Join us and support the storytellers who are making this goal a reality.
